Holidays With the Hermans

Pee-Wee is back and we are getting news about his first feature film in decades.

In another Netflix takes over the world deals, we get more incite into what to expect.

His creator, Paul Reubens, along with producer Judd Apatow and Netflix, announced in February a deal to make and distribute an entirely new film about the lovable man-boy. Pee-wee’s Big Holiday will be the character’s first feature film in more than two and a half decades.

One interesting question asked in the interview involved the tone of the film.

What can you tell me about Big Holiday?
It’s a road-trip movie across the country. It’s very similar in style and tone to Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. But it’s not about a bicycle. I never really thought of Big Adventure as a family movie, but I didn’t try to make an adult movie or a kid movie. We wanted to make something that appealed to a wide age range, and I think that’s the case with this movie also.

I think Pee-Wee Herman’s style of comedy plays as well today as it it did 30 years ago. Maybe even better. Can’t wait for the next installment.
